POEM

Taking a moment to 

breathe in the miracle of life

and the beauty of God’s creations.

 

Taking pause where 

my soul finds stillness

in places of quiet

reflection.

 

Taking a moment in

opening my awareness

to listen to the whisper

of God’s voice 

who dwells

within those

spaces of attentive

care

in the depth of

my soul.

 

Taking pause in my day

in being present 

with the rhythm 

of my heart

steadily 

beating, 

coursing

life’s sustaining

blood, flowing

through my earthly 

vessel.

 

My mind is lifted

to another realm

knowing 

my life is but a fleeting

wisp —–

where one day,

my body will breath no more

and my life on earth will 

come to its final end.

 

What remnants 

will remain of who

I was and how will

those I leave behind

remember me?

Living Intentionally

The preciousness of our lives are a gift from God and if we are mindful in slowing down our pace, being present in this one moment, being present when with others, learning to still  our souls, opening our thoughts in an attentive listening to the Holy Spirit who dwells in us, we become the reflection of God’s beauty upon this earth.
